CHECKERS, ZACH BENNETT, FAMILY TO BE FEATURED ON ESPN E:60
Watch party/Playoff rally scheduled for Tuesday at Pavilion at EpiCentre
The Checkers announced today that the organization, several of its players and new Charlotte residents Zach, Jenna, Randy and Danielle Bennett will be featured on ESPN’s weekly investigative newsmagazine show E:60. The piece will air during Tuesday’s season finale at 7 p.m. on ESPN.
It was announced in April that the Checkers, with the help of sponsors, donations and fan support, were able to purchase a home for Zach and his family and they have relocated to Charlotte from Albany, N.Y. for better medical care and to be closer to the team.
In conjunction with the show, the Checkers will be hosting a viewing party and playoff rally at the Pavilion at EpiCentre (210 East Trade Street, top floor) in Uptown Charlotte from 6:30 - 10 p.m. on Tuesday, May 10. There will be raffle prizes, giveaways and a special screening of E:60 at 7 p.m. in the Biergarten at EpiCentre. All ages are welcome.
In attendance will be Checkers players, staff members, CheckMates, Chubby and the Bennett family.
